Charity Event Photography – Hughey’s Ball 2015

On Saturday 17th October we attended charity event Hughey’s Ball 2015 at Ramada Sutton Coldfield. This is our 2nd year providing photography at Hughey’s Ball, this year’s ball was in aid of Help for Heroes. We were set up in the Dorchester Suite taking portrait photos of all the guests dressed in their finest, even the gents polished up well! Following the meal and fundraising, a casino table was set up which was great fun.

We attend a number of charity events to take photos of guests. We really enjoy attending these events as the atmosphere is always fun and feel part of the night. We provide very high quality 9″x6″ prints presented in a mount, and for all sales made on the night, we donate a percentage to the charity.

If you are organising an event, please contact us to discuss your photography requirements.

Here are a few images from Hughey’s Ball.

Charity Event Photography – Lily’s Ball 2015

On Saturday 10th October 2015, we attended the annual Bliss charity event, Lily’s Ball 2015, at Moor Hall Hotel. We have attended this annual extravaganza for the past 5 years, and is always a pleasure to attend. Bliss is a UK charity working to provide the best possible care and support for all premature and sick babies and their families.

We attend a number of charity events to take arrival shots of the ladies looking stunning and the gents looking dapper in their suits. Majority of the shots we are asked for are of a portrait that can be framed and put on display, but some funnies are often captured which are too good to be refused, these photos in particular were great fun (by the way, we have no idea what’s going on either)

Food Photography – Don Diego, Sutton Coldfield

Whether you run a restaurant, cafe, bakery, or catering company, the best way to showcase your food is with professional photography. This will give your website, menu, and advertising campaigns a professional look and promote a positive image of your business.

We recently provided professional photographs of the food served at Don Diego in Sutton Coldfield. Don Diego is a Tapas Bar located in the town centre. As the dishes were brought out for photographing, the food was mouth watering! It looked so good that we booked a table for the following Saturday night. The food was amazing, along with the service. The images produced are being used on their website, menus and advertising. Below is a sample of the images.

If you would like professional photographs of your products, take a look at our product photography page and contact us to discuss your requirements.

Newborn and Baby Photography

Having a new addition in your family is a very special time, newborn photography and baby photography is a lovely way to record those cherished early months.

We love having babies in the studio, but as you can imagine with all babies, you just don’t know what to expect. Some babies are very laid back and go with the flow, others have their stubborn streak come out in abundance. The one piece of advice we can offer, is to relax during the shoot and go with what your little one is happy with. By all means, come along with an idea of the photography you would like, but we have experienced sometimes what you want, baby doesn’t!

This little lovely was completely adorable during the shoot and loved the attention which created great images. This was a great family and they loved the results.

Please take a look at our gallery for more newborn and baby photography, and contact us to discuss booking your shoot.
